National Study of Child Protective Services Systems and Reform Efforts: Site Visits Report . Organization of the CPS Agency


An executive director heads the Brooks County DFCS. There are two units under the director — Economic Security and Social Services. Economic Security handles Food Stamps, TANF, and Welfare to Work. Social Services is responsible for CPS and Placement, as well as Adult Protective Services. During 2001, the executive director split the responsibilities for CPS and Placement and added a second supervisor to Social Services. CPS and Placement were each assigned five caseworkers. Unfortunately, as of July 2002, CPS lost an allocation for one caseworker; the result has been an increase in CPS workload that is above State guidelines. One caseworker is assigned to intake, one assigned to investigation (with the support from one of the ongoing workers), and two workers are assigned to ongoing cases.
